Welcome to Skylands GroupCovering Sussex and Northern Warren Counties. In addition to our web page, you may also visit us on FaceBook and find our events on the online events calendar of the NJ Chapter website. We also advertise in various media sites throughout the Skylands region.
OFFICERS:(All Officers are members of the Group Executive Committee)
ACTIVITIES:We are presently working with other grassroots organizations to protect the natural resources and beauty of Northwest New Jersey. We are located in some of the most environmentally sensitive areas of which millions of New Jerseyans depend upon their drinking water.
The Skylands Group promotes outreach activities to grow our membership so we can present a more effective voice toward the challenges our community faces such as climate change and local environmental issues as they arise.
Whether for recreation, education, or to support legislation, we initiate events which include preservation of clean drinking water, expanding or protecting open space against development, and preserving the natural habitat of the thousands of unique plant and animal species native to this region.
Our opposition to hydrofracking, natural gas pipelines and New Jersey's acceptance of frack waste is in response to the inherent risk of polluting our land and waterways. Moreover, this dirty extraction method and infrastructure destroys natural resources and vistas from which our ecotourism economy depends.
We sponsor hikes throughout the region and support protecting the Appalachian Trail, Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area, and New Jersey Highlands. The Skylands Group further advocates for upgrading the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area into a National Park and Preserve.
